Dara Salaam Busley Agricultural Development Project - Main Report

Somalia intends to increase its arable crop production, ultimately to attain self-sufficiency in cereals (except in wheat which cannot be grown in the country economically), decrease its import requirements of vegetable oils, become self-sufficient in cotton lint and exploit a potential export market in the Gulf and Saudi Arabia for water melons. brThe proposed project area has been found in the course of this study to be potentially suitable to further this overall objective: in most features it is similar, or better, than nearby areas where development projects have successfully increased agricultural production.

Groundwater Salinity Study October - November 1987

When agricultural operations in the Mogambo Irrigation Project (MIP) area started in 1985, the management team for the agricultural development of the area expressed its concern about the high salinity levels and low hydraulic conductivity of the subsoils. They suggested that this could seriously affect the growing of rice and other crops in the area. The same concerns were expressed by Sir M. MacDonald and Partners Limited (MMP) in their Supplementary Feasibility Study Report. This Program were set up to investigate br-the effects of crop rotations, particularly rice double cropping, water table depth and salinity br-the nature and permeability of subsoils in both the Mogambo project and the nearby Fanoole rice project br- the influence of irrigation on root zone salinity

Jubba environmental and socioeconomic studies Volume IV - Bibliography

This bibliography is a revised version of the JESS bibliography that was published in 1986, relating specifically to social and environmental systems in Somalia as well as river basin assessment and planning, in general. Many new references have been added and the bibliography has been organized into 22 different sections, corresponding to the subject codes (BIBCODE) being used by the JESS team in Somalia. In each section, citations are listed alphabetically by author or issuing body, and citations dealing specifically with Somalia have been separated from other references within the same section. Each citation is listed only once even if it is multidisciplinary and since it was impossible to secure copies of all references cited, many are simply classified according to the informarion contained in the title. brThe bibliography includes selected monographs, conference papers, journal articles. book chapters. reports, JESS studies and dissertations.

Mogambo Irrigation Project, Report on phase II development - Surface irrigation

(Extract from the introduction) The Mogambo Irrigation Project (MIP) have suggested that a limited development of the Phase II area could be implemented by the inclusion of the areas of basin soils not developed under Phase I together with the marginal areas of land included in the Phase II area proposed for sprinkler irrigation but capable of economic development by surface irrigation. This note delineates these areas and proposes surface methods of irrigation suitable for these lighter soils with a less uniform topography.

Comprehensive groundwater development project Volume II: General activities

This End of Project report (EPR) summarizes the results of five years of intensive effort to investigate and to develop the groundwater resource potential of Somalia. The scarcity 0f dependable water supplies for the rural population and for their livestock is one of the most serious constraints to the economic development of the country. The Government of the Democratic Republic of Somalia (GDRS), in recognition of this problem, and in cooperation with the United States Agency for International Development ( U S A I D ) , estaSlished and funded the Comprehensive Groundwater Development Project (CGDP), This project was administered through the Water Development Agency (WDA) of the ministry of Minerals of Minerals and Water Resources, and was provided technical assistance by the firm of Louis Berger International, (LBI), in association with the Roscoe Moss Company (hereinafter referred to as LBII/RM). In addition 20 deveioping water supplies in the designated priority areas of the Bay, Hiran, Galgadud, and Mudug Regions (Figure) the overall purpose of the CGDP was to strengthen the WDA is capabiiity to construct,operate, and maintain rural water supply systems. As a further inducement to accomplish these goals, the CCDP was designed to be integrated with two existing USAID projectsthe Bay Region Agricultural Development project (BRAGB) and the Central Rangelands Development Project (CRDP).br; bVolumesb :ol li Executive Summary /li liGeneral Activities/li liHydrogeology/li liAppendix for volume 2/li liAppendices for volume 3/li /ol
